About this title


Twelve stories of dark futures and odd imaginings to catch your breath and unhinge your mind: these stories deliver what Marianne Moore called, “Imaginary gardens with real toads.” Though “The Mountain and The Vortex” - the novella that gives this collection its name - is a complex tale, intricately interlaced with historical allusions and genre-jumping subplots, it remains imminently readable. These are the works of a true storyteller, and are accompanied by seventeen mind-bending illustrations by masters of the craft.

Séquanon flew backward in time and crashed into the eye of God.
The impact sent him swinging wildly in his hammock. The instrument panels went blank and a moment later displayed data that made no sense.

About the Author:

Stephen T. Vessels wrote his first story when he was six years old. Forty years later he wrote one that sold. His earliest inspirations were the horror films of Bela Lugosi, Boris Karlos and Vincent Price, and science fiction films like Ib Melchior's "Journey to the Seventh Planet." Later he encountered the legendary Modern Library anthology, "Tales of Terror and the Supernatural," which he read in the back seat while his parents drove through Texas. In 2012 he received the Best Fiction award from the Santa Barbara Writers Conference, and in 2014 was nominated for a Thriller Award. This is his first published book.
